Is there a recipe out there somewhere? It's not really still a mystery is it?

Is it somewhere in Jeff Berry's books and I just missed it?

It is not out there for public display. It may not be a big mystery. The Mai Kai has shared recipes before. But a recipe for that large amount of drink is not useful to many. I'd like to know it, but then, I'd like to have them all! I do know it has 13 ounces of booze in it.

I'd love to know what's in the Black Magic, it has a special place in my heart

Tiki Cay & Ginger bought us drinks during the Hukilau before taking us home to their tiki bar to weather the storm.

Try the Krakatoa in the Grog Log for a very similar drink to the Black Magic.

Correction, the Mai-Kai Mystery Drink has 9 ounces of liquor in it.

Just posted: A full review of the Mystery Drink that answers many questions:

http://www.slammie.com/atomicgrog/blog/2012/01/01/mai-kai-cocktail-review-the-timeless-appeal-of-this-classic-is-no-mystery/



But for much more cool historical info, you'll need to attend Swanky's symposium at Hukilau 2012. He's updating another thread with details:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=41783&forum=4

Among the questions he promises to answer: Who invented the Mystery Drink? What inspired it? Who created the first bowl design? Who were the first Mystery Girls? And who almost was?

Great info Jim.

Before turning 21 when I went to Florida all I wanted to do was go to DisneyWorld

Now all I want to do is go to the Mai-Kai

For some reason, I want to do both.

Of course, The Mai-Kai is the Disney World of Tiki.
